Volts

A measure of "electrical pressure" between two points. The voltage specification of an incandescent lamp is the electrical "pressure" required to drive it at its designed point. The "voltage" of a ballast (e.g. 120 V) refers to the line voltage coming from the power source and is connected to the ballast.
 
Volts

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.

Bulb Shape

The description of the general appearance of a lamp/bulb consists of a letter(s) followed by a number. The letter indicates the shape of the bulb and the number relates to the diameter of the bulb in eighths of an inch. For example, a common household bulb is the A-19. The bulb is "A" shape and the diameter would be nineteen 8ths of an inch, or 2 3/8".

CRI

Color Rendering Index is an international system used to rate a lamp's ability to render object colors. The higher the CRI (based upon a 0-100 scale) the richer and more accurately colors generally appear. CRI differences among lamps are not usually visible to the eye unless the difference is more than 3-5 points.
 
CRI
82

Color Temperature (Kelvin)

An expression of the hue of the light emitted, measured in degrees Kelvin. Usually expressed by a four digit number followed by (k), such as 2700k. Higher temperatures indicate whiter, "cooler" colors, while lower temperatures indicate yellower, "warmer" colors. Some common Kelvin temperature benchmarks are 2700k (warm white), 3500k (neutral white), 4100k (cool white), 5000k (bright white), and 6500k (daylight).
 
Color Temperature (Kelvin)
2800

Brightness (Lumens)

A rating of the initial light output of a bulb, rated after 100 hrs of operation. Lumens are a measure of how much light falls on one square foot of area, one foot away from the light source.
 
Brightness (Lumens)
1600

Bulb Finish

The surface finish of a bulb, which may affect the quality of the light emitted.

Average Rated Life (hr)

A measurement of the average length of time, between first use and the point when 50% of the lamps tested have stopped functioning, , using an operating cycle of 3 hours on, 20 minutes off.
 
Average Rated Life (hr)
8000

Length (in)

Also referred to as "Maximum Overall Length" (MOL). For light bulbs, it measures the length of a light bulb, from the top of the bulb to the bottom of the base or pins and is typically expressed in inches. For light fixtures and ballasts, it applies to the total horizontal length of the item.
 
Length (in)

Hums...doesn't get very dim

2

Tried to use these in two pendant lamps above our kitchen island/bar. The bulbs are long, so they extended past the bottom edge of the fixture glass. Very bright light, and despite the description these did not seem to emit a "warm" color...so they were uncomfortably glaring to sit near. When dimmed, they hum loud enough to be distracting to conversation. And when dimmed to lowest level, they just aren't that dim. All in all they aren't usable in this application.

Bulbs do not last

I installed 10 of these in my office about a year ago. Since then 7 of them have burned out.

Used for just under 1 year in a household dimmable fixture. 2 bulbs burnt out about the same time. Not a durable product.

Dims Well, Cost Effective

This is a replacement for a 100W living room table lamp. At only 23W at full brightness, it's a good choice. It dims well with my INSTEON dimming system for day-to-day use, but puts out good brightness when that's needed.

Q & A
Can these be used in three-way light fixtures? I have three lamps that use three-way bulbs and I've been wanting to switch them to low voltage bulbs or if possible to LED light bulbs.

This bulb should not be used in a three-way fixture. We do offer three-way CFL's on our website and they can be found using the following link. http://www.bulbs.com/results.aspx?Ntt=3-WAY Spiral&Nty=1
